"I have used Justin's services on two separate occasions; once in civil court and another on a real estate purchase. In both instances he proved to be knowledgeable of the laws in play, detailed regarding his approach, and effective with his delivery. We were completely successful with the civil case and the purchase went through smoothly. Through each step he kept me comfortable and informed on the processes, timelines, and likely outcomes of different strategies. I would recommended Justin for your legal representation. His personal touch and detailed approach will be an asset to you."

"Justin reviewed and negotiated our office lease. He was able to accommodate a very quick turn around with many edits. Justin took the time to review many areas of concern with our lease and made sure that we understood and were comfortable with what we were signing. He also took the lead on negotiating the lease on our behalf. We are very pleased with the lease that we signed."
